I know some fellows that collect Mack trucks. they bought a factory to store
the unrestored ones, and filled in the empty space with flathead V- Ford
trucks. Compared to that sort of thing, those big Vaxes don't seem that
big. After all, to a large degree things are relative. A Universe or a
Dual is large compared to ZX-81, but small compared to a PDP-9.
